Green Mountain Power warns of rise in scam calls

COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) Green Mountain Power is warning customers about a rise in scam calls.

Callers claim to be from GMP and threaten to shut off your power unless they get paid within 30 minutes.

GMP says it would never do that and if you get a call like this, just hang up. Do not give out personal information, do not engage with the caller and don't call them back. Instead, call GMP customer service to report the call.
